Solemnity of Jesus Christ, King of the Universe – 

Today, as we end this liturgical year and prepare for Advent and Christmas, let’s face the truth of our lives. As the good thief, are we humble enough to admit our sinfulness and so better recognize Jesus in our midst? Are we still trying to invite Jesus into our kingdom, or are we willing to make the sacrifice to be a member of his Kingdom? We have got to know the Heart of our King and we can only come to this knowledge and understanding by reflecting on the cross.
